Kevin Parrom's status for this season remains up in the air.

Arizona's junior wing, expected to be one of the Wildcats top players this season following the departure of Derrick Williams to the NBA, was shot while back home in New York last month.

Miller said there is no timetable for his return.

Not yet.

"We are cautiously optimistic based on his progress," Miller told on Wednesday. "But we don't know when he'll be back - if at all this season."

Miller said that Parrom returned to Tucson with no feeling below his right knee.

"He's going to run under water this weekend," Miller said.

Miller reiterated that the plan is to continue to monitor Parrom's progress before making a decision.

He also said that he won't place Parrom and his long-term future in jeopardy.

"We've already talked about the possibility of redshirting," Miller said. "But it depends on the progress he continues to make."

"Again, we're optimistic he'll be able to play this season," he added. "But we honestly don't know right now. He could be back for the first game, for league play or not at all."

Parrom's status remains unclear for season

What a tradjedy for this up and coming Wildcat team. I don't recall hearing about this when it happened but hope for a quick recovery so he can be back out on the floor.
